The injury list continues to grow for the Pittsburgh Penguins.

With top-liners Evgeni Malkin and Kris Letang already on the shelf with injuries, the Penguins are now without the services off recently acquired center Marcel Goc.

Goc, who spent his first seven seasons, and the first 62 games of this year, with the Florida Panthers, will be out at least three weeks with a foot injury.

His scheduled return to action would be during the Penguins first round series of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Goc has just two points in 12 regular games with the Penguins, but with Malkin, Letang, Chris Conner Paul Martin, and Pascal Dupuis, all on injured reserve, Pittsburgh is limping to the finish line.

Despite the injuries, however, the Penguins lead the Metropolitan division by nine points over the New York Rangers with just nine games left on the regular season schedule, and Sydney Crosby, who has missed the majority of the last three seasons with injuries, has missed just one game this year, and leads the NHL with 96 points, on his was to his second career Art Ross Trophy.
